i am not impressed with the mare at all. she has coloring in her favor, she is very short which i know you pointed out. she looks more like a large pony that needs to be worked. she is a cute gal but for what you want to do i would pass her up. almost like a hunter pony no dressage horse. keep looking you will find something that is what you are looking for!! good luck

She is just green broke if that ( I actually think she's not broke to ride at all!). If this is not the horse you are talking about ignore this post! She just looks very similar to the one I saw! Let me know...I have more info, about her!
Yup...Crosby's Frosted Dreams... Thanks for heads up. Where did you see her? I have actually already crossed her off the list...

Going to look at a 2 yr old (3 months shy of 3 yrs) OTTB- Broke. Only thing that concerns me if that the owner has been using him for lessons...not sure how often or for the length of time...but would that raise red flags for any of you? He has already been on the racetrack once and was too laid back to race. The lady that gave him a place to go has been working with him. Supposed to be very gentle the point she lets 12 yr olds ride him. Just seems like alot of riding for a young horse. Correct me if Im wrong.

Personally, the fact that she's using him as a lessons horse and he's not 3 would really put me off... but I come from the understanding that a baby shouldnt be put under saddle until 3 or above... no matter the development etc... then again this board has really opened my eyes to this being the practise a lot in some cases! Not personally attacking anyone here...
I would very much so be put off at the idea of a baby doing as much work as that, despite being on the track earlier in life.
But that's just my personal morals.

I can't see her doing dressage. More of a jumper. Hasn't got that look that a horse needs.
